EXCLUSIVE: Hugh Sullivan’s debut feature world premieres at next month’s SXSW.

Shoreline Entertainment has bulked up its EFM slate with Australian selection The Infinite Man, set to receive its world premiere at SXSW next month.

Hugh Sullivan’s feature directorial debut is a time-travel rom-com about a man whose attempts to construct the perfect romantic weekend backfire when he traps his lover in an eternal loop.

Josh McConville, Hannah Marshall and Alex Dimitriades star.

Kate Croser and Sandy Cameron of South Australia-based Hedone Productions produced the SXSW Visions selection.

The film is produced in association with Bonsai Films, with investment from the South Australia Film Corporation through its FilmLab funding initiative. Development assistance comes from Screen Australia. 

Shoreline evp Sam Eigen and director of acquisitions Melody Djavadi negotiated the deal with Croser and executive producer Jonathan Page, currently riding high on Sundance hit The Babadook.

Eigen said The Infinite Man was “the perfect example of a smart and original film that has terrific global appeal”.
